Ashley Cain’s daughter faces new type of chemo as leukaemia forms in new area

Ashley Cain has shared an update on his daughter, revealing that she needs a new type of chemotherapy.

The dad, who shares Azaylia with Safiyya Vorajee, told that his baby's blasts of her leukaemia had formed in a new place.

Seven-month-old Azaylia is battling a rare, aggressive form of cancer known as acute myeloid leukaemia, with Ashley and Safiyya deciding to take her to Singapore for specialist treatment.

Updating followers from the hospital, Ashley wrote: "Azaylia had to go into theatre yesterday, for a bone marrow test to read her leukemia count, plus, a lumber puncture to extract samples to send off to Singapore.

"After that, doctors had to take 60ml of blood from her followed by a 4 hour blood transfusion. Later, she had chemotherapy with two separate drugs: Azacitidine and the drug we've been working tirelessly to get hold of, Venetoclax."

He added: "That was a tough enough because of Azaylia's pain and discomfort from the multiple procedures. Until we got told by consultants, that they had found blasts of leukemia forming in her Cerebrospinal fluid, which can result in it finding the brain!

"This now means that Azaylia will now have to have another form of chemotherapy intrathecally, through the spinal tap to attack the leukemia and protect her brain.

"This means today she will be having a CT scan on her head to make sure we can go through with this intrathecal procedure tomorrow."

Ashley also revealed that he's managed to get just three hours of sleep in two days.

"The reality is that, there are no days off on this journey, no time out periods and no single second without worry or fear," he continued.

"If you asked me a year ago, I would've never imagined how strong I could or would have to be. That being said, you never really know how strong you are, until being strong is your only option."

Mum Safiyya told yesterday how Azaylia was in "a lot of pain" on the day she received the bone marrow procedure.

Meanwhile, stars and the public alike have rallied around the family of three to get Azaylia to Singapore.

Ashley offered heartfelt thanks after a GoFundMe page soared over £1 million.

Molly-Mae Hague and Kate and Rio Ferdinand were among those generous souls.
